Solved Using custom domain and subdomain for my forum

Post by ian2000 December 21st 2017, 3:10 am

My domain is https://somiibo.com and my forumotion address is http://somiibo.forumotion.com. I want my forumotion address to be https://forum.somiibo.com

I use cloudflare to manage my DNS and I set up a CNAME record like so: name = forum, value = somiibo.forumotion.com

I went to the forumotion admin panel and entered my desired domain name for my forum and received an error message reading "You have no CNAME redirecting to : somiibo.forumotion.com"

I followed that guide exactly to the best of my knowledge. I went over it again two times just to be sure, and I’m still getting the same errors.

Is it possible that you might know where I’m messing things up? I can’t figure it out.

Thank you.

Are you adding www in your forum's AP?

Well I don't know what happened but I think it's working now. I tried switching off my cloudflare perks and forumotion AP accepted the submission. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction
